Awesome view of the mountains and the plateaus surrounding the area. The tokonans (Toraja traditional houses) gives you a very original feeling with deep meanings. Recomended places for a deep culture explorers: Palawa, kete'kesu, and Londa. Experience the most expensive and sacred funerals too.

We are world travelers and Indonesia is one of our favorite places to visit. No visit would be complete without going to Toraja Land; it is absolutely fascinating with burial sites which have a strange beauty, baby graves, and we were able to attend a funeral this trip.

Me and a friend really wanted to do some serious hiking when in Indonesia, and did we get it! We spent 3 full days walking around through what seemed like an infinite amount of ricefields. But the view never gets old! At night we stayed in local villages. People there were very friendly and made dinner for us, but they don't speak a single word of English. Luckily we had our guide, Yakob. He was a really nice guy and also served as bit as a translater at times.
Funny sidenote: because my mate and I are quite pale (especially me), locals would often come up to us and ask for our picture.
